Posti has always been the company next door. In every village in Finland, on every street corner, we’ve been at the center of communication. Sustainability is at the core of our company strategy and purpose. In 2011, we were the world’s first carbon-neutral postal operator. Today we are leading the way in sustainable logistics with ambitious climate targets approved by the SBTi.
We are now looking for a new Sustainability Director to write the next chapter of our globally recognized work and join a company where being responsible is at the core of the company's purpose.
Sustainability is at the heart of everything Posti does, – starting with the purpose: Responsibly delivering what matters to you – on your terms. Our pioneering sustainability work is globally recognized: being the first logistics company with SBTi-approved net-zero targets, having the highest Ecovadis sustainability rating, and appearing on the Financial Times list of the European Climate Leaders, are just a few examples of that.
As our current Sustainability Director moves to a new position within Posti, we are now in search of a new colleague to continue the marvelous work done so far, and to build the next phase as we enter a new strategic period in our sustainability work.
We are offering a unique opportunity to help to write the next chapter of this story. As a Sustainability Director, you will get to drive the sustainability agenda at Posti as an industry leader. You will continue Posti’s work for fossil-free logistics and our targets for people’s well-being with internal and external stakeholders, customers, and partners. You ensure our business continues to grow responsibly and that sustainability continues to be a core element of our corporate strategy. You will be an aspirational leader for your teams as well as a spokesperson for the whole Posti organization and Posti’s customers and stakeholders. You will be the person who inspires, motivates, and engages key persons to make responsible decisions.
We hope you get excited when you:
Lead the Group sustainability & related strategy work by securing we aim high enough.
Lead the implementation of our sustainability program and create the next one together with the ones who matter.
Take what we do with sustainability to our business customers in the form of joint business development or new services – and create something completely new for the market, working cross-organization and influencing in the matrix.

Act as spokesperson for media and represent Posti in different stakeholder groups and industry networks both nationally as well as internationally.
